// See ./example folder for details
import React from 'react'
import { StyleSheet, View } from 'react-native'
import LinkedInModal from 'react-native-linkedin'
const styles = StyleSheet.create({
  container: {
    flex: 1,
    backgroundColor: '#fff',
    justifyContent: 'center',
    alignItems: 'center',
export default class AppContainer extends React.Component {
  render() {
    return (
      <View style={styles.container}>
          clientID="[ Your client id from ]"
          clientSecret="[ Your client secret from ]"
          redirectUri="[ Your redirect uri set into ]"
          onSuccess={token => console.log(token)}


Please note that you should give your linkedin client id and you secret key to the component. You should be aware that key can be found if you store it directly to your code. I strongly recommand to not declare both on your code but found a way to keep it secret (ie. get it from server, encrypt it, ...)

Roadmap & TODOs

  • Better style for modal: border, padding, transparency
  • Button to close the modal
  • Better catch of error into login url
  • Add gif example in README
  • Publish example to expo
  • Test every line of code
  • Add props or other function to fetch more informations like basic profile information
  • Use Expo WebBrowser when app is in Expo (ie. if global.__exponent exist)

> Propose


PRs are welcome!


Is it supported and tested both on android and iOS?


How to get the basic profile of a user after getting the token?

const access_token // from this lib 
const baseApi = ''
const params = [
  // add more fields here
const qs = { format: 'json' }
const response = await fetch(
    method: 'GET',
    headers: {
      Authorization: 'Bearer ' + access_token
const payload = await response.json()
